PlayStation Crashes Coachella with Games, Giveaways & VIP Passes

Michael Steranka's Avatar Posted by Sony Interactive Entertainment

PS at Coachella

Attention music lovers! PlayStation is heading to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 12th-14th, and again on April 19th-21st. Come check out unreleased games like Tearaway and Injustice: Gods Among Us, or play new releases like God of War: Ascension and PlayStation All-Stars for a chance to get a VIP Pass upgrade. On top of that, we will be giving away PS3s, PS Vitas, trials for PS Plus and Music Unlimited, as well as free DLC for featured games at the event. Aside from the ability to play awesome games, this will be your only chance to score some unique PlayStation gear.

Some of you might be thinking, “But PlayStation, Coachella has been completely sold out for months. How do you expect me to go and have one of the greatest times of my life?” Well you’re in luck! With the help of Music Unlimited, we are hooking up a couple lucky PlayStation fans with VIP tickets to Coachella. You will have two opportunities to win:

Music Unlimited Playlist Challenge

Starting today, you can go to the PlayStation @ Coachella event page on Facebook and post your personal Coachella playlist from the Music Unlimited catalog. On March 8th, 25 random playlists will be selected for people to vote on. The playlist with the most votes will be featured in the PlayStation footprint at Coachella, and the creator of the playlist will score two VIP tickets to Coachella, including travel and hotel fare. Details and official rules can be found here.

PlayStation Character Challenge

Between March 18th – March 27th, you can post a picture of yourself cosplaying as your favorite PlayStation character on Instagram. If you tag the picture with #PlayStationFan and #CoachellaVIP, you will be entered for a chance to win two VIP tickets to Coachella, as well as a PlayStation Entertainment Pack! Details and official rules can be found here.

Finally, be sure to follow @HeyPlayStation on Twitter for updates on what we’re doing at Coachella. Who knows, there might be even more opportunities to win tickets to the sold out festival there! Good luck everybody. I can’t wait to listen to your playlists and see what creative PlayStation cosplays you come up with!

Can we use Photoshop to make the Cosplay as long as we do it to a picture of ourselves?

Where might a non-Coachella-attending PlayStation fanboy obtain/purchase some PlayStation swag? It would be nice to have an official merch store.

So wait, the PlayStation contest doesn’t specify–if you win the PlayStation cosplay contest is airfaire/hotel covered there too or only on the Music Unlimited one?

    The airfare + hotel is exclusive to the Music Unlimited Playlist Challenge. For the PlayStation Character Challenge, the winner will get two VIP tickets and a HUGE PlayStation Entertainment Package, which includes a PS3, a PSVita, 5 PS3 Games and 5 PS Vita Games. Both prizes are pretty awesome if you ask me :)

Just spent an hour piecing together a nice-flowing playlist. Thank god for my Music Unlimited subscription so I could double-check if the songs were there.

    It is! Unfortunately it’s a custom Blog avatar that I chose, so it’s unavailable on PSN. Maybe someday…

@response to 10
PLEASE Make Vivi an avatar! FFIX is to this day my favorite Final Fantasy game, and the existentialism of Vivi is a large part of why I love it =D
